The Metropolis Clergy-Laity Assembly concerns itself with matters affecting the life and growth of the Parishes and communities within the Metropolis (except for dogmatic and canonical issues). It deals with matters of common concern including the uniform governance of the Parishes, educational programs, financial programs, and philanthropic concerns as well as with the better organization and effectiveness of the Parishes. The Assembly also submits proposals and recommendations to the Archdiocese for submission to the next Archdiocesan Clergy-Laity Congress.
